The Father William Scheid Players Presents Guys and Dolls

The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William
Scheid Players will continue their 39th season with Guys and Dolls. Set in
Damon Runyan’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy considered
by many to be the perfect musical, soars with the spirit of Broadway as
it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who are legends in the canon: Sarah
Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evil-doers of
Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet to Cuba and ends up falling inlove; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.
This year’s cast of 90 will feature several priests of the Archdiocese, including Monsignor John Borcic of St. Mary Magdalen Parish, Fr. John Brennell of Seven Holy Founders Parish in Affton, Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish, Fr. Bill Wigand of Regina Cleri, and Fr. Terry Borgerding, along with dozens of talented grade school, teenage, and adult performers from 35 different parishes in the Archdiocese. Our parishioner Claire Himsteadt is the HBD/ Choreographer.
This year marks the group’s 39th anniversary of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.
